SWEP has launched the ultra-pressure B285H product, offering a solution for transcritical CO2 refrigeration systems. 

Targeting applications with single-phase fluids, high heat loads and demanding pressure requirements, the B285H complements SWEP’s existing transcritical refrigeration product portfolio. It has a new plate pattern optimised for high heat load capacities of up to 550kW as a gas cooler and for a flow capacity above 50m³/h. 

According to the company, by applying SWEP B285H in a system, the large capacity range combined with a compact size supports a reduced footprint and lower cost of ownership. For businesses using natural refrigerants, the double-plate design delivers a frameless solution that uses less material while withstanding ultra-high working pressures. 

SWEP says it is committed to meeting its customers’ demands for innovative and sustainable product solutions that support the transition to environmentally friendly refrigerants. The B285H has been designed for applications such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, heat recovery and heat pumps.
